ASUS Eee Pad Announced

The third and final Android tablet announced by ASUS at CES 2011 is another member of the Eee Pad family, called the MeMO. The special feature of this 7-inch Honeycomb tablet is that it comes with an innovative capacitive stylus and two apps, which will make this particular slate more appealing to those who like to take notes, draw, or simply write on their tablets.

The Android 3.0 tablet is powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor. It features a 7-inch, IPS multi-touch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels and comes installed with two cameras: a front-facing 1.2 megapixel camera, and a rear-facing 5 megapixel one. There are two applications included - Media Note (for taking notes, writing memos), and Painter (for drawing).

ASUS also promises a special Bluetooth media phone extender called the MeMic. The slate is said to arrive this June, for an estimated price of $500. So, for all those who can't imagine a tablet without a proper stylus included, this Android tablet could just as well be a replacement for the cancelled Microsoft Courier. ASUS has clearly overdone itself with its announced upcoming tablets - all that remains is for the tablets to actually be released, as promised.
